now stay right here. "viewpoint" is next. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: what is worse, "zero dark thirty" which glorifies torture or the twilight movies which constitute torture. the republicans are tired of fighting democrats so some of them are upgrading to just fighting democracy. and it turns out there is oil in afghanistan. sean hannity is demanding that we reinvade. the oil will pay for the war. just like last time. today is the birthday of the late virginia woolf alicia keys and texas chainsaw massacre and poltergeist director tobe hooper. and 98 years ago today alexander graham bell made the first cross-country phone call. tragically he did it using at&t wireless and dropped out halfway through. this is "viewpoint." [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> john: good evening i'm john fugelsang. thank you so much for joining us tonight. with the nothing in the 2012 national election behind them, and the risk of demographic doom at the hands of surging minority groups growing every day the g.o.p. is making an all-out effort to reboot the whole brand. last night luis boy governor bobby jindal ha
at winning that nomination. mitt romney had also run in 2008. remember? he lost to john mccain that year. but that year, 2008, also was not john mccain's first effort at winning the republican presidential nomination. he had run before as well. he had run in the year 2000, when he lost to george w. bush. and while that john mccain campaign and his loss that year has mostly been remembered for the egregiously racist dirty tricks played against john mccain in the south carolina primary that year, that's mostly what we think of when we think of him losing to george w. bush that year, now what is starting to become the more salient thing about that losing run, about that losing attempt at winning the republican presidential nomination, what seems more salient now is who john mccain's national co-chair was for that run. it was republican senator chuck hagel. there he is. you can see him in the little circle on the left there. with john mccain's entourage as john mccain was getting ready to launch his presidential bid back in 2000. this is the same chuck hagel who is president obama's nominee
material. his old pal and fellow vietnam veteran john mccain jumped all over him for opposing the search --the surge in iraq. >> were you correct or not to say that the surge would be the month dangerous foreign policy blunder since vietnam? correct or incorrect? yes or no? are you going to answer the question? the question is, where you're right or wrong? that is a pretty straightforward question. i would like for you to answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> i am not going to give you a yes or no answer -- >> hagel finally gave the answer on the surge that he wanted to give. >> i saw the consequences and suffering and horror of war, so i did question a surge. will this be worth the sacrifice? we lost almost 1200 american during that period was it required, necessary? >> how much of that exchange was political, how much was personal, and how much was related to the defense policy? >> 92, 11, 13. a lot of it was personal. one could not watch those hearings without feeling there were a lot of personal grudges but, even vendettas, being settled. >> c
. >> is she right? what difference does it make? or is she wrong? >> i think it does make a difference, john, but i think she handled herself extremely well. there are three questions. why was security not provided despite the pleas. why was help not sent to these guys over seven hours of attacks, and what is responsible for the massive cover-up and fake stories about this video, anti-muslim video. she said to the third, i had nothing to do with the talking points, nothing to do with the military, i take responsibility for the lack of security. however, all these memos and cables that came, they all didn't come into my office personally, but i take responsibility. i think she handled it well, john. and the issue i think is pretty much gone now, and the republicans did it not succeed in what they were trying to cue. >> how would you describe hillary clinton at the house and the senate hearings? what kind of an adjective would you use? >> i would say she was commanding, i would say she was presidential. she came across very much as someone who is shouldering responsibility but she also avoided
? or is the recovery stalling out pat buchanan? >> i think basically it is true, john. the u.s. economy is out of the intensive care it was in, in 2007-2008 but it has been walking the hospital halls ever since. the growth has been growing at an average of about 2%, unemployment is where it was when barack obama took office, we are adding about 150,000 jobs a month, but john, the real problem here is this slow growing is occurring when we have had five straight trillion dollars worth of defense deficits to pump it up and we get $85 billion a month in transfusions a month from the fed and we are still limping along like a mature and quite frankly modest economy. >> eleanor? >> i think these numbers reflect the fact that government is shrinking and the defense department really pulled back in the last quarter of last year. it is a cautionary sign and looks like both parties are kind of sleepwalking their way toward a sequester. the ropes don't want to -- the republicans don't want to give up anything on the revenue side they would rather take a hit in spending. the democrats have protect social
." >>> good evenly iing. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. why is john mccain so gri? why america? why are we fighting the vietnam war all over again in the united states senate. the have it tree troll against chuck hagel. is it about lyndon johnson's inability to win that war or end it? what is it that burns so deeply in john mccain today? for some reason he wants to play it again and again in iraq and afterno afghanistan and again in iran. we look at the resentment burning in john mccain's heart. it's not against george w. bush and his political henchmen who tried to stay mccain's reputation in 2000 but a guy who fear and rallied against wounds just like he did. chuck hagel, a nightmare, by the way, whose flashbacks must haunt still the heart still of john sydney mccain. both are msnbc analysts. both of you, sir, and lady, are younger than me, but i must tell you i'm absolutely convinced we're watching a flashback. watch this. he did a long angry windup before he launched into his first so-called question which was really an indictment. it included putdowns as well
a telephone call to chuck schumer and said, "look, i want to start talking about immigration." john mccain started one day to talk about immigration, and what happens? we are where we are. >> some people know that capitol hill is amazing, because you can walk up to anyone, and that does not mean they will talk to you, but you can ask a question. when i moved from the hill, from the white house to the hill, i was like standing back because i was trained like not to approach people, and they were, "go ahead, approach people." i have watched you. you physically grabbed the senators. tell me the secret in getting these senators to talk to you. >> i do not actually grab them. >> yes, you do. >> i sort of hide behind the bushes and pop out. you try to develop a relationship over the years and talking to them and grabbing them in certain locations, where they are more predisposed to chat. when they are running quickly to a vote, for instance, i would not get the best interview, but if they are walking back to their office, you will have more time to chat and get to know them. over the years, you
this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some of the callers on my radio show who told me how the current immigration system is tearing their families apart. >> i'm a new citizen. i'm married to my wife. she's from nicaragua. for the last 18 years. we have three beautiful children. i have paid thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees to get her residency, at least that. and all immigration, all they want to do is take my wife out of this country, send her to nicaragua for 18 months to five years waiting for her papers over there. why they want to do that? she don't have no family over there. she was brought here when she was a child. >> i married my wife here in madison, who is a philippine citizen. she was in this country legally under papers, whatever she needed. we got married. we filed the appropriate papers with the government, and then her father passed away and we had to go to the philippines to attend her

texas senator john cornyn, who has decided to make himself the de facto leader of the hagel opposition. >> the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense has already done damage to the united states' credibility in its attempt to deny iran a nuclear weapon. >> hagel is also likely to face questions about his position on gay rights after his 1998 comments, criticizing a u.s. ambassador nominee as openly, aggressively gay. hagel apologized and that former adviser, james hormel, now supports hagel's nomination. but much of the opposition to hagel is rooted in his loud split with the republican party over the iraq war and skepticism about his willingness to use force. in an interview with cnn, vice president biden argued that hagel is no dove. >> the idea of getting engaged in a ground war, in a country that's in transition is not a precipitation any military man would suggest. >> in many ways, obama's pick of hagel, who he forged a relationship with in the senate, then traveled with to afghanistan and iraq in july of 2008, along with cia nominee john brennan and incomin
here. >> good to be here. >> let's take a listen. john mccain is just now questioning, so let's listen in. >> sure. >> great members of this committee who have contributed so much to our nation's defense. senator hagel, members of this committee will raise questions reflecting concerns with your policy positions. they're not reasonable people disagreeing, they're fundamental disagreements. our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your world view on critical areas of national security including security in the middle east. with that in mind, let me begin with your opposition to the surge in iraq. 2006 we lost -- republicans lost the election and we began the surge, and you wrote a piece in "the washington post," quote, leaving iraq honorably. 2007 you committed -- you said it's not in the national interest to deepen its military involvement. in january of 2007 in a rather bizarre exchange with secretary rice in the foreign relations committee after some nonsense about syria and crossing the border into iran and syria because of the surge, then a reference to
injured. more is under way in the misconduct trial of john leopold. his lawyer arrested monday after calling on one of his doctors and a county personnel director. following their testimony, the judge -- the defense asked the judge to drop the case, citing allegations that these actions did not constitute crimes. the judge threw out the request. on monday, jurors heard from christina barnes, phylicia barnes older sister, and the ex- girlfriend of johnson. she testified that she said johnson made a pass at kalisha. she also found things missing from her apartment at about the same time that phylicia disappeared. >> temperatures have warmed up more than expected. it is the first time we've been above 50 in eight days. currently at 58 at the airport. 57 downtown. still in the upper 40's into the suburbs. 60 degrees at the airport this afternoon. everyone else will be in the mid 50's. most cloudy through the evening hours. a sprinkle possible tonight. better rain chances going through tomorrow afternoon. a cold front comes to the area and temperatures will be changing. >> still ahead, fr
. senator john mccain took the lead and set the tone early on. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your worldview on critical areas of national security, including security in the middle east. >> john mccain did not always have grave concerns about chuck hagel's worldview. in fact, he named chuck hagel a co-chair of his 2000 presidential campaign. >> my fellow americans, i introduce you to a great republican, a great american leader, my friend, john mccain! >> how come mccain didn't get that kind of greeting, huh? or hagel, should i say. not only were hagel and mccain good buddies, john mccain wanted to give hagel the exact job he's up for right now. he told voters in new hampshire, "there's a lot of people that could be secretary of state -- secretary of defense. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel." but mccain sure has a different view of hagel today. he still can't get over hagel's opposition to the surge in iraq. >> do you stand by that -- those comments, senator hagel? >> well, senator, i stand by them because i made them. >> were you r
. gwen: john mccain was not talking to be population. he was talking about hispanic voters. karen, forgive me. 2007 sounds like an echo of some place we've been before. >> yeah, the things that people are talking about now -- enhanced security on the border. cracking down on hiring of illegal immigrants, a legalization program, all of those things were actually done, written into the law in 1986 and i looked back and looked at the signing ceremony where president reagan declareed that future generations of americans will be faithful for our efforts to humanely regain control of our boarders. that law -- borders. that law, the last immigration reform that this country attempted actually left the country the exact same problems it had then, only worse. back then there are three million to five million illegal immigrants. now there are 1 1. rather than settling this question of who gets to be an american, it's now more enflamed than it has been in memory and it's in part because of that law and its failures that i think we are where we are today. >> as i understand it, the decree tea
verdicts. anne arundel county executive john leopold accused of misconduct and former culpeper, virginia, police officer daniel harmon-wright. accused of murder. we begin with a guilty verdict for harmon-wright. >> reporter: it took jury nine hours to reach their verdict. it came shortly after 4:00 today and the defendant, daniel harmon-wright sat emotionless. his wife was in tears. one of the jurors also crying. 30 minutes later harmon-wright was escorted in handcuffs to the jail. jury of eight women and four men convicted him of voluntary manslaughter. he was also found guilty of two other charges, involuntary man slaughter and unlawfully shooting into a motor vehicle. it steps from an incident at a catholic school where he shot and killed patricia cook. harmon-wright pep pled self-defense. the jury didn't believe. >> it it is important for the court to send a message. in this case, i felt like it was unjustified from the very beginning. the only question was what grade of mom side was it. i'm going the ask the court for a significant penalty to reinforce the message had was wrong. >>
. >> she has. john kerry has big shoes to fill. but i don't think shoes are the right world. the president of the foreign relations community said it. >> i would say that john kerry has some fire lee large manola manola baloniks to fills. >> that was very good. >> the no m -- how tall would be he if he was in a pair of manola baloniks. >> he was a monster. >> i don't think he would walk in them like hillary condition. >> i think they are a brand of shoes. i had no idea. >> i thought i was the only stupid one out there. i didn't know what they were talking about. >> i did know that. i did know that. >> of course. >> of course. i had no idea. only at 6:00 a.m. in the morning can you have a conversation with malona baloniks. >> tina turner -- they were famous before tina, but it's known that tina dances in manola balonisk. >> i thought she was talking -- he was talking about the glasses. she has the anti-concussion glasses. >> they are very expensive shoes. >> $3,000 a pop. >> i know this because i used to watch sex and the city. >> the fac
member. do you think the majority led by people like, well, john boehner and cantor are actually going to put their fingers on an immigration bill and pass it? >> i think they will, chris, and i hope they will. i think especially with the november election, the american people made it clear, i believe, that they want the congress and they want the president to tackle this issue and to finally get it done. i think what we've seen in the last few days is very promising, first with the senate proposal and now the president's proposal. at least we know we're having a serious discussion about it and we're more or less on the same field. >> i have always liked schumer politically and rubio, the fact he's with them, lindsey graham, i respect them all. given who they are. they're all different politics. are you surprised that rubio, who is obviously gunning for the presidency, has been able to make a deal with someone like chuck schumer of new york who is a liberal? is this something that can be done across the country, liberal/conservative compromise with teeth and also with something for peo

democratic congressman patrick murphy. he was the first iraq war vet elected to congress. and john saltz, an iraq war veteran and chairman of vote vets dot org. >> let me start with you, congressman. why are these senators today really arguing about president bush and president obama on foreign policy? >> they were, rev. and it was like neocon 101. they were relitigating the iraq war. the iraq war that had nothing to do with 9/1. the iraq war that diverted our attention from bringing bin laden to justice and just about $3 trillion. i mean, it's time to start nation-building at home. and i will tell you, chuck hagel, today should have been a historic day because he's the first enlisted man ever to become secdef. secretary of defense. now let me tell you something, too, they're trying to make him look weak. but look at what happened in 1999. chuck hag ergs l always puts his country first. muslims were getting murdered. it was the worst ethnic cleansing in europe since germany. and then president clinton said we're going to send our men and women into kosovo. he's one of only two republican
the iraq surge. as chuck hagel is challenged by john mccain. >> would you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no. >> my reference to the surge being -- >> the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you are right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i am not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show you refuse to answer that question. now, please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why i -- >> i absolutely would like answer answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that. >> is this finally the year for immigration reform? president obama sits down with jose diaz bullart. >> i don't think that it should take many, many months. i think this is something that we should be able to get done certainly this
and your former colleague, senator john kerry, who will serve as we confirm him in the next 24 hours as the 68th secretary of state. senator kerry has served in this senate in a distinguished amount of public service since 1985. he grew up traveling the world with his father in the foreign service. he fought in vietnam and was awarded the bronze and silver stars along with three purple hearts. i know he is going to build upon and continue the legacy and the extraordinary record of secretary clinton, and will enhance america's leadership in the world. i look forward to his speedy confirmation. madam president, i yield the floor. a senator: madam president? mr. rubio: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from florida. mr. rubio: let me begin by thanking the senior senator from florida a few moments ago made some very kind remarks about me and i appreciate them very much. let me say you're the best python hunter in the senate. those who don't know what i'm talking about can look it up in your newspaper accounts a few weeks ago in the everglades. thank you for your kind wo
to survive. but if you remember that virtual lovefest a week ago, that was john kerry's hearing for secretary of state, this is not like that. cnn's chief congressional correspondent dana bash is watching the hearings. and dana, i was watching some of your reporting earlier on. as these hearings began to unfold starting at 9:30 this morning. you said stoic, i you described the panel. you these were long-term old friends who had a very different tenor in this room today? >> that's right. and i think at least early on, the statement, opening statement from the top republican, hagel's fellow republican on this committee, his name is jim inhofe from oklahoma probably says it all when it comes to republican skepticism and outright criticism of chuck hagel. listen to what jim inhofe said about and to chuck hagel. >> though i respect senator hagel his record to date in the day demonstrate he is hob a staunch advocate of president's first term. retreating from america's global leadership role in shrinking the military will not make america safer. on the contemporary, it will embolden our enemy, ep da
